Third Station Topped-Out on Shatin to Central Link

Members of the community joined members of the Shatin to Central Link (SCL) project team to celebrate the ‘topping out’ of the Diamond Hill Station Extension on 6 June 2016. Diamond Hill Station becomes a new interchange station for the future SCL and the existing Kwun Tong Line, and is the third SCL station to be ‘topped out’. Previously, Hin Keng and Kai Tak stations have reached this milestone.

General Manager – SCL & Head of E&M Construction of MTR Corporation Mr TM Lee said:

"The Diamond Hill Station Extension is the first interchange station of the SCL with major civil construction works completed. Underneath Lung Cheung Road, works are still being carried out to connect the newly built extension to the existing Diamond Hill Station, and the construction team is taking great care so as not to affect the busy road traffic."

The SCL is a territory-wide strategic railway project connecting Shatin and the surrounding districts to Admiralty on Hong Kong Island and encompasses the "Tai Wai to Hung Hom Section" and "Hung Hom to Admiralty Section". The "Tai Wai to Hung Hom Section" is expected to be commissioned in 2019.
